The confirmed number of people infected with the coronavirus grew by 83 and now stands at 2,583. About 13% of them are healthcare workers according to Chief Medical Officer Cecília Müller. There are 9,829 people in compulsory home quarantine and 498 recovered. The official number of samples tested in an accredited laboratory in this country of 9.8 million people is 65,625.

Responding to a question, she said that the testing of a new form of blood-plasma treatment is underway: Although the test subject is in stable condition, more time is needed to know how effective the treatment may be.
